MEASURES OF MERIT
MEN, WOMEN, GENDER ISSUES
Against all odds, Ruth Colian is trying to run for the Israeli Knesset. She knows that she is fighting an uphill battle – but she also knows that Ultra-Orthodox, Haredi women are the only segment of Israeli society that is not represented in the Knesset. She sets out to establish the first ever-political party for Haredi women that will run for elections in 2015. She is an unexpected character, who survived a traumatic childhood to go on to be a wife, a mother and a fighter for women.
